The news agency noted the Wu was also likely to hold meetings with all South Korean presidential candidates in the light of the upcoming vote, slated for May 9.
Tensions on the Korean Peninsula escalated since North Korea carried out a number of missile launches and nuclear tests, one of the latest being a launch of four missiles in the direction of the Sea of Japan conducted on March 6. The launches are considered to be in violation with the corresponding resolution adopted by the United Nations.
On Wednesday, North Korea reportedly launched a ballistic missile from Sinpho, South Hamgyong province.
